Weekend Haiku & Limericks

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: aging parents, tiny frogs, sledding crows, hitchhiking red-winged blackbirds, or something from Monday's nature quote. Feel free to mine the comments, too.

Post your haiku or limericks in the comments, below. Remember the pattern of a haiku is:

First, 5 syllables,
the second line has seven.
And 5 at the end.

A limerick is a wee bit more complicated. Here's one description.

Post your haiku or limerick in the comments, below.

  1. He Got It

    Though we can't tell what's left in his head,
    There's at least one connecting thread.
    He asked, "Who are you?"
    "Your gorgeous daughters, that's who!"
    "And modest," he smiled and said.

  2. Woodlands
    axe


    Ringing
    drifts silently away.


    Zephyr
    stirs dancing branch.

  3. After the service
    for Dad, we stop to buy milk
    because life goes on

  4. It's a true story--from a time my sis and I, like you and yours, were visiting our dad in his Alzheimer's unit. I'm still laughing about your well-written story of the repeater guy who said, "Help! Help!" Ya  gotta enjoy the moments.

  5. Keep your eyes open
    Once gone it's lost for ages
    Curse of trillium

  6. The Tiny Frog



    A tiny frog feeling frisky

    Decided to try something risky

    As a ghastly gag

    He jumped into a bag

    of M&Ms, and perished by a chaser of whiskey.

  7. Her brain's full of holes
    like lace, unraveling now.
    She forgets to breathe.
